9780961988401: The Transparent Feather

The Transparent Feather...and other gifts from Berry Berry Morgan, a prize-winning author living out her days in a nursing home, works out a unique partnership with an aspiring writer. BJ Appelgren will transcribe Berry's memoirs, and in return Berry will help develop BJ's writing. The unanticipated friendship at a critical time in both women's lives surprises them. While working on her memoirs, Berry creates a unique course in writing that causes BJ to re-examine the inner turmoil of her baffling perceptions regarding death and the mystery of after-life. The elder's optimistic influence does not end with her death. Unexpected events conspire to bring The Transparent Feather to a life-affirming conclusion, and BJ, herself, to a belated coming-of-age. This book speaks to anyone who has had an intuitive experience but whose rational outlook may have gotten in the way of appreciating the true meaning. Excerpt from The Transparent Feather... "Officially I'm allowed my sherry only in the evening, but the pain is getting worse. Would you pour me just half a cup?" she asked, pointing to the plastic water cups on the sink. I paused to think about giving her the sherry, finally saying, "But you're not supposed to have it." "Oh, is this like my swallowing the mouthwash?" she snapped. "You fussing over the rules of my superb medical treatment? Take a look at me. Are we talking about preserving my good health?" About the Author BJ Appelgren has been an artist, teacher, potter, executive director of a non-profit agency, counselor, and writer of an alternative health newsletter--but it is in writing 'literature,' she has re-discovered art as revelation. Originally from Chicago, she has lived in the Shenandoah Valley of West Virginia for over twenty-five years.
